Skew gouges are great for reaching into tight corners or carving figured wood. In certain instances they can carve against the grain while leaving a smooth cut. The set includes both left and right-handed versions of the #3 and #5 sweeps. A right-handed tool will have the point on the left side of the cutting edge. A left-handed tool will have the point on the right side of the cutting tool.
Palm Tools included: LS400 #3 x 9/16″ Left-Hand Skew, RS400 #3 x 9/16″ Right-Hand Skew, LS401 #5 x 9/16″ Left-Hand Skew, RS401 #5 x 9/16″ Right-Hand Skew.
Scorps are essentially right-angled gouges designed for carving areas where the full length of a gouge will not fit. Knife carvers will find them useful for hollowing deep, narrow cavities. Our Right-Handed Scorp Set includes all 4 right-handed profiles, a tool roll and a custom molded strop to maintain your razor-sharp edges.
Right-Handed carvers should choose a right-handed tool to cut towards yourself. Choose a left-handed tool to cut away from yourself (you can buy these in Left hand or right hand as a set or individually )

KN100 4-Piece Carving Knife Set
Each set includes: KN12 cutting knife, KN13 detail knife, KN18 pelican knife, KN19 mini-pelican knife and tool roll.
Designed for extreme detail used in netsuke or caricature carving. These tools have their edges forged down even thinner than our other palm tools. Cutting with these fine edges allows the carver to work extremely close to adjacent detail without crushing wood fibers that can lead to “chipping out.” The 45 degree V-tool offers a deep, dark, visible cut while keeping an ultra narrow width.
These tools give maximum wood removal with minimum effort. They are designed for carvers with the confidence to hog wastewood off quickly and save roughing-out time.
As the name implies, this set was made for miniature carving. Model-makers, as well as those who enjoy carving fine detail, find these tools quite handy. Ranging in size from 1/8-inch down to 1/16-inch, these tools make others seem like crayons when you really need a sharp pencil.
This set is a combination of the FR310 and FR404 palm sets. The regular palm for detail and the wide format for roughing-out makes this a great collection in one convenient box.
For those who require the close control of a palm-sized tool but need to remove larger amounts of wood. Their low-resistance edge give them the feel of a narrower tool.
This very popular set is great for those just getting started or those with more experience who like to carve smaller sized projects. The handle fits comfortably in the palm, allowing for good control close to your work. The five profiles can perform a variety of tasks and carve moderate detail.
Palm Tools included: FR308 #2 x 5/16″, FR305 #3 x 3/8″, FR306 #6 x 5/16″, FR309 #11 x 1/8″, FR307 70 deg. x 1/4″.
